  • Hi,

    When something like this happens to me, it has been caused by one of two things: 1. The popup form is sized so small like it almost minimized, or 2. The  popup form shows up on an imaginary second monitor. I say "imaginary" because I could have been using two monitors during development but then deploy the database to users with only one monitor.

    Hope it helps...

  • Hi Patjob,

    You had mentioned that,

    (1) if I set pop-up to yes. I v=cannot see form in form view unless I go through layout view first,

    I try to make a test on my side and find that I can see the form in Form view without any issue.

    (2) the form does not appear if called from another form.

    You can check that it is working fine on my side.

    You can inform us if your form has any other settings set that can affect the output.

    We will try to modify our settings like yours and again try to reproduce the issue.

    Regards

    Deepak
